Menu Plan Monday – July 6, 2009
This week the girls and I are off to Girl Scout Day Camp with our gluten and dairy free goodies. I have pre-posted for each day this week what our camp menu is and what we are bringing instead, so keep an eye out for that. The posts should be up by 7 a.m. Central time, if I have figured out the post time correctly.
For my dinner menu this week, I will be mostly using my crock pot and husband to get dinner on the table. I have all my crock pot meals prepped and frozen. I will only have to make rice or quinoa and a salad for dinner. I wanted to keep dinner EASY for myself this week as each night I need to be sure to have the meals for the girls and I together for camp the next day. Everything that can be done is in my freezer ready to go, but I need to be sure to gather the correct things so I am not in a rush in the morning.
Head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday. For the Gluten Free Menu Swap, see Gluten Free Goodness who is our host this week. Cheryl has picked garlic, one of my favorites! Next week I get to host – I so excited!

Girl Scout Day Camp – Monday’s Menu
Snack: Edible Fire This year they are using the following:
Rocks: M&M’s – we are using Skittles.
Flame: Candy Corn – we are using dried apricots cut into triangles.
Tinder: Shoe String Potatoes – we are bringing a small uncontaminated can.
Kindling: pretzel sticks – I tried to get the Glutano GF pretzel sticks, but my local store was out, so I got the GF pretzel twists.
Logs: Licorice cut into chunks – We are using a mix of Candy tree Organic Raspberry Bites and GFCF Turkey Sticks
Coals: Red Hots – my girls don’t like them, so we are using the red skittles for this one.
Water – to put out the fire…
Lunch: Hot dogs (they have all beef, no filler, naturally gluten and dairy free ones at camp. Woo!), buns (made our own), baby carrots, ranch dressing (GFCF recipe here, but my kids aren’t into dip, so we are skipping it), ketchup (have our own packets), mustard (have our own packets), potato chips (bringing our own single serve packets for each of us).
Desert: Snicker Salad (used the alternatives here, but as I couldn’t find that candy this year, I am cutting up a EnviroKids Peanut Butter Panda Bar and tossing in a few GFCF chocolate chips to replace the snickers bar. My kids are pleased with that replacement, and it is easy for me! Gotta love it.)
The before going home snack everyday will be a popsicle (the camp has already GFCF ones) or fudgicle (the camp is getting a box of Toffuti fudge bars for us to have at camp. How nice!)
